Jackson’s Pollock Pretzels

My son Jackson’s teacher asked me to make a sweet treat to send into school for the Christmas party, here is what we made:

We made Pollack style pretzels for my sons class, SWEET!

The kids loved drizzling melted chocolate over the mini pretzels. When My husband saw what we made he sad “wow, that’s pollocky!” And Jackson Pollock pretzels were born (and it is extra cool cuz my son’s name is Jackson…not after Jackson Pollack though;) Here is a painting by Jackson Pollock but it is not nearly as tasty as the pretzels!

Here is how to make the pretzels, You will need: Wilton disposable decorating bags, Melt n’ Mold chocolate wafers, mini pretzels, wax paper, a pan of water on medium heat (grown-ups only please) or a microwave.

Fill a decorating bag with chocolate wafers leaving about 2″-3″ at the top empty and twist closed. Dip them in hot water for about 5 seconds at a time then smoosh the bag to melt and mix the chocolate, do this until melted. Or you can melt the wafers in the microwave (see package instructions)

Place a sheet of waxed paper on the table and dump a layer of pretzels on top.

Snip off the end f the decorating bags filled with chocolate and gently squeeze the bag as you drizzle the chocolate over the pretzels. Let cool, then peel the pretzels off the waxed paper, break them apart and store in a tin, jar, treat bag or plastic container.

If you would like to know more about Jackson Pollack visit this website, if you want to kill some time click here to paint your own pollack on the computer (just don’t let your boss catch you LOL) this is appropriate for children too.

This would be a fun art history project for children, and tasty too! Thanks for stopping by and till next time happy crafting!
